WTF??? 61


This story seems better suited for the late great 'Weekly World News'...

Newspaper claims suspect transformed into a goat
LAGOS, Nigeria – One of Nigeria's biggest daily newspapers reported that police implicated a goat in an attempted automobile theft. In a front-page article on Friday, the Vanguard newspaper said that two men tried to steal a Mazda car two days earlier in Kwara State, with one suspect transforming himself into a goat as vigilantes cornered him.
The paper quoted police spokesman Tunde Mohammed as saying that while one suspect escaped, the other transformed into a goat as he was about to be apprehended.
The newspaper reported that police paraded the goat before journalists, and published a picture of the animal.
Police in the state couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Belief in black magic is widespread in Nigeria, particularly in far-flung rural areas.

Is it in Nigeria that they had a recent rash of albino killings so that sorcerers could use their body parts to make magic potions?

I swear I don't make this stuff up. Happened in Africa, someplace...
